  • Jilly,

    I know it is hard to feel good right now but surely there is one thing that you can choose about yourself today and say "I have a really nice........." Tomorrow you can pick a new thing or the same thing but you are not fat and ugly! I think you just have to find your beauty one aspect at a time. Thin won't make you pretty, you make you pretty! I think I have nice hair today. What do you have?

  • when you look in the mirror.....see a new you. today is the first day of the rest of your new you life. remember only you can change who you see. start today. think beautiful!!!!!!! emoticon - by LAURICKS
  • If someone would say you are fat and ugly would they be your friend?
    Would you even say that to someone else? I don't think so!
    So why are you saying that to yourself?
    Look in that mirror and give yourself GOOD affirmative comments. You are beautiful. You are doing something to get healthy etc.

  • There is a lot of beauty looking back at your from that mirror! I can't believe that is all that you see! God didn't make ugly, people do! emoticon - by SUNSET09
  • emoticon I understand your feelings, and hopefully you are on this site to improve yourself. Everyone needs to vent once in a while, but you need to ask yourself, is this negative thought process helping? You are the only one who can change you. - by SHEPHERDMOM
  • I HATE looking in the mirror. I dread the scale so I don't weigh myself. Little successes have become more important, such being able to slip into a pair of pants that before I could only pull up to my knees. - by 1HELPLESSMOM

    What you are feeling right now isn't uncommon. Actually, I feel that way some days. I think we all do. I know for myself it's just a frame of mind. You and I have joined Spark's to get over these feelings. We both can conquer it...look at all the nice people on here that are willing to give us all the encouragement we want and need. The next time you look in the mirror and have those feelings,try to view it as having a bad hair day. Tomorrow will be different and alot better. - by WALELA3
  • The only thing I can say to you is that I totally understand. Now we both have to get on the stick and do something about it. - by MSKITYOCAT
    Start doing something about it...stop cheating and get with the program...ugly is another matter - by SUNSHINE6442
